These are 3 quick casserole recipes we’ve tried recently, and ended up loving! If you’re on a tight budget, these will fit well into your meal plan.
2 cups cooked ground meat (or chopped up steak if you have that)
1 can of gravy (or make your own, if you know how)
1 package of frozen veg. medley or corn
1 pouch of mashed potatoes, prepared (or use leftover mashed potatoes)
mix the ground beef and the gravy together. Place at the bottom of the casserole dish(no need to grease). Top with the frozen veggies. Top that with the prepared mashed potatoes. Sprinkle the top of the mashed potatoes with salt and pepper. Drizzle the melted butter (mmmm) on top of the potatoes. Place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes and Enjoy!
